the long -- to be global. they make the long-distance connection. the facebook's and the googles to ride on top of that. >> if somebody here in washington sent an e-mail to somebody in kenya, how does that track? >> that is interesting. if you asked that question two years ago, the answer would be different. only recently now that kenya has good connection to the internet rather than rely on satellite intermission. from washington to kenya, it would go through a building in ashford, virginia. 80% sure it would go through lower manhattan. dest is one of the major note for the transatlantic cable. the undersea cables that cross the atlantic and transport this communication. it would go through a single building in london. it is the uk equivalent of ashford in the u.s. i know that because the two cables down the east coast of africa both have their major london.n from there it is a straight shot. it is a fascinating place. it is in the same spot as the ancient report. -- port. this is the place where the international -- >> where are these undersea cables that you referred to earlier? and b
, if we buy something on amazon, if weak bank online, if we do a google search, -- if we bank online, is that information stored on these data centers and throw it may be stored. it is certainly processed -- centers. >> it may be stored. it is certainly processed. the information we create in doing all of these actions, some of it is kind of short-lived information. it goes out. you get back the answer you want. it operates. -- evaporates. other information, when you go and bank online or buy something at amazon and it has to keep a record of that transaction, for its own inventory and your billing records, that stays alive basically forever. >> are these data centers the so-called cloud? >> it is a funny term. it is used in two different ways. in some people's minds, the cloud is anything that happens in the database. it is the magical stuff that happens when you send out this request. your e-mail or your request for a menu to some restaurant, and it comes back. that is a general way of speaking about the digital world. technical people in this industry refine it further. they refer
be a network like facebook or google. but what's striking and necessary to understand the way it manifests itself physically is that networks carry networks. you might have a global backbone company like a level three or a tata that own the strands of glass and that own the conduits that might run perhaps beside railroad tracks across the country. you might have another company, sort of a mid-sized network services company, one called hurricane electric, that might actually illuminate those strands of glass. they might own the light. ask and then you might have a goldman sachs or large law firm that buys bandwidth on that glass. so it's, you know, we often talk about b the information superhighway as if the network itself were the highway. i hike to think of it more -- i like to think of it more that a given network is a car chugging along the highway side by side with other networks because there's definitely a layering going on that's crucial to understanding the way in which the networks of the internet operate individually, on a global basis, but then, of course, have to interconnect i
. so i'm seeing a lot of rumors about something called branded phones. so facebook, amazon, now google, mozilla, having whisperings about their own phone which may be a little confusing for consumers but these are phones that are highly branded with these services and that you will be able to get to the services anywhere you are. you can facebook anything -- >> instead of motorola, i will have a private label amazon phone that's going to help me get to amazon and its services quickly, facebook and its quickly. but will they run on droid or microsoft's platform? >> that's the question. there are rumors that mozilla will do their own operating system but a lot of these will probably use some version of android. >> let's talk about microsoft which is always in the news. the surface, the initial one, it's a very nice piece of equipment but you say watch microsoft's surface pro. >> right. the original surface got a mehh. the pro is the one that we're kind of excited about because it can run the full version of windows professional 8. that means anything you can do on your windows device or

to check apple shares, let's see how it's reacting to news of google's new phone. everybody thought, nicole, that apple would take a hit. not so. >> this is very interesting. apple is not taking a hit and google is slightly to the down side. here is the deal. iphone, ipad. how about x-phone, x-tab lert? that's what google's motorola is working on reportedly accord sources looking at what larry page, the ceo is working on. and first, the x-phone, which is meant to directly take market share from those apple and samsung, and then later, where they've got a good marketing budget for this one, the x-tablet. >> shibani, you've been following the market, what do you think? >> i think this is a bigger deal from motorola versus anyone else out there. motorola has lost its footing in the market and hasn't had a great phone in years and-- >> quickly, why is google down and apple up? does that mean that the market doesn't trust google's? >> i think that this is a very competitive market and until we get the phone no one is going to make any-- >> folks, you have heard stuart's prediction, all the talk
beneficial to the consumer. i think this promise is being fulfilled. for one, by the way, go to google or go to amazon and search for products and do a little price comparison. >> sure. >> you know, i did a quick search. in "the wall street journal" story there is the example of the swingline stapler. i did a quick google search and found staplers that cost $6 all the way to $40 and all varieties and colors. i did an amazon search and found as much variety. the fact is consumers have tons of variety. from a different perspective, we have e-commerce start-ups that are disrupting brick and mortar retail all the time. you were just talking about amazon and best buy. look at what is going on with west buy. the harris poll found 40% of consumers go into a best buy and they do this thing called show rooming where they look at the phone and see and they leave and go spend $200 on amazon. i think people are still, they're definitely finding that e-commerce is working out for consumers. >> trust me. the new ceo of best buy is well aware of that. >> you have to be a really smart shopper. there are all

economic forces, right? i love the technology revolution, i'm a google addict. they're also drivers of social and political consequences which are not quite so benign. the way i like to look at it, and this is a quote from peter orszag, is, you know, how he sees it is he said, look, the big drivers are probably these economic forces, but the issue is that particularly in the united states the politics instead of trying to mitigate these very powerful economic forces has exacerbated them. so even as you have these economic forces creating much, much more concentration at the very top, you expect politics to sort of try to so much that blow. social institutions to soften that blow. and instead it's been an accelerate rant. and to me, that seems just about right. so who are these super rich guys, and what do they think about the rest of us, and what impact do they have? i would say, you know, the way i would characterize them as a group -- this is sort of a global group -- is these are global alpha geeks. so they do tend to be. and this is a difference from a kind of, you know, downton
